NFL sells Pro Bowl jerseys with a hefty $175 price tag

Jan 29, 2016 at 2:50 PM--


For some time now, fans have complained about the prices of Nike NFL merchandise since they took over as the official league outfitter from the already overpriced Reebok. Game jerseys, which are replica jerseys that feature screen printed names and numbers on them, have a recommended retail price of $99.99. Limited jerseys, which are of higher quality and feature stitched tackle twill name and numbers, have a recommended retail price of $149.99. Elite jerseys, which are similar to the ones worn by the players during games, have a recommended retail price of $294.99. At those prices, it's easy to see why cheaper knock-off jerseys are so popular.

If you were planning on picking up a NaVorro Bowman Pro Bowl jersey (No love for Joe Staley who does not have a jersey available) at these same prices, think again. Pro Bowl jerseys that feature screen printed names and numbers on them, the same style that runs $99.99 for team versions, will cost you a recommended retail price of $174.99. You read that correctly. That's $25 more than the higher quality Limited jerseys available.

You may love Bowman, but do you love him enough to pay those kinds of prices?

The annual AFC-NFC all-star game will take place on Sunday, January 31 at 4 PM Pacific. This will be Bowman's third Pro Bowl appearance (2012, 2013 and 2015 seasons).

49ers rookie Trey Lance to make first NFL start, says Kyle Shanahan

The San Francisco 49ers hoped quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo would be able to take part in today's practice and test whether his right leg was strong enough to play on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. Garoppolo didn't, and he has now missed an entire week's worth of practice. After practice, head coach Kyle Shanahan said the 49ers are ruling Garoppolo "out" for the Week 5 matchup and that rookie Trey Lance would start in the veteran's place. With Garoppolo sidelined, Lance has received the majority of the practice reps this week. "The more reps you get, the better you're going to get," general manager John Lynch said this morning on KNBR. "He does things exceptionally well. I think he's taken to our offense well. With every rep, he's going to get

4th Quarter GAME ALERT: With the 17-10 win, the Cardinals will remain undefeated on the season, with the 49ers moving to 2-3 as they approach their bye week. QUARTER ALERT: At the 2-minute warning, the 49ers trail 17-10, as the Cardinals have a 1st & 10 at the 50-yard line, while the 49ers have no timeouts. James Conner gets a four-yard rush on 2nd & 2 to essentially put this game away for the Arizona Cardinals. SCORE ALERT: After failing to convert on 2nd and 3rd downs, the 49ers settles for a field goal on 4th down, bringing the game to 17-10 with 4:17 remaining in the 4th. After the touchdown, Trey Lance fires a bullet to Deebo Samuel, who makes the catch for



49ers-Cardinals: Players, coaches praise Trey Lance after first NFL start

Trey Lance's first NFL start was far from perfect, but it was good enough to leave a positive impression on those who were playing with and against him on the field. Lance finished with 192 yards on 15-of-29 passing with zero touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, while also leading both teams in rushing with 16 carries for 89 yards. Following the game, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters he felt Lance played well overall despite the first quarter interception that the Cardinals turned into their first touchdown. "I thought he did some really good things," Shanahan said. "Definitely wasn't perfect, which no one ever has been. That first pick I thought just sailed on him. He was going to the right spot but it



NFL exec wonders if this Garoppolo-to-Browns trade makes sense for the 49ers

The Cleveland Browns have lost two consecutive games. Their quarterback, Baker Mayfield, is ailing. He had his arm in a sling after the Browns' 37-14 loss to the Arizona Cardinals this past weekend and said this of his shoulder: "It feels like s--t." Mayfield suffered a partially torn labrum in Week 2. He landed hard on that same shoulder on Sunday following a sack by Cardinals defender J.J. Watt. With the November 2 trade deadline approaching, San Francisco 49ers fans should brace themselves for a lot of Jimmy Garoppolo chatter now that the No. 3 overall pick, Trey Lance, has a start under his belt. The team has expressed a preference to ride out the season with the more experienced Garoppolo at the helm. Does that change depending on how these next two games
